Google rolled out Android Q‘s first beta version for all Pixel phones last night. I’ve installed it on my Pixel 3 XL, and found some really neat features. One of the best new additions is how easy it is to share your WiFi settings.

Every time a friend visits your home, you have to tell them your WiFi password. Not anymore. Android Q gives you a handy option to share your WiFi connection details through a QR code. Your friend can then quickly scan the code, and boom – they’re connected to your router.

To do that, head to Settings > Network & internet > WiFi and click on the connection name you want to share. As shown in the screenshot below, you’ll be able to share the details through a QR code, once you authenticate the process via your registered fingerprint on the device.
